  3. Caribbean Princess
The ship had just come out of a yard period in which changes were made to deck 16 & 17 to attract more family cruises. They also did some routine maintenance around the entire ship. Since we have cruised the Eastern Caribbean many times we only we only got off in St Thomas. The ship was in great condition and clean in everything we used. Below was my assessment of this cruise. 1) Service could have been better in the bars and Lido deck. 2) Food was very good. 3) Production shows were top notch. 4) Lounge entertainment was lacking especially having no piano player in Crooners. Heard from a Ship Officer that there were 1500 first time Princess cruisers on this cruise. I guess summer Caribbean cruises will be popular. My cabin D725, a mini-suite, was in the rear of the ship and we could feel pronounced vibrations coming the engines. Think I will stick with cabins more in midship area. If you sail on the Caribbean Princess and enjoy a quiet area to read try the Skywalker Lounge on Deck 19.

This was my first cruise since obtaining Princess Elite Status.
